Grayson, who has been very critical of Fox News, was ambushed by Fox News' Griff Jenkins, who wanted a comment regarding Grayson calling Fed adviser Linda Robertson a "K Street whore," The AP reports:
Robertson is a former top Enron lobbyist and Clinton administration adviser who was hired by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke this summer to help with congressional relations as lawmakers are seeking more oversight of the agency. Washington's K Street is where many lobbyists have their offices.
Griffin also asked Grayson what he thought about Rep. Anthony Weiner saying that he is "one fry short of a happy meal." Grayson refused to answer, telling Jenkins that he must make an appointment like other news organizations if he wants a comment. Grayson has apologized for his comment about Robertson.
